PA and NJ Logging and Timber Accident Cases
Whether for lumber or land clearing, logging is one of the most dangerous occupations in the U.S. In 2008, there were nearly 100 deaths per 100,000 workers. Logging involves heavy moving equipment and dangerous tools like chainsaws, operated under potentially severe environmental conditions such as wet, dense forests or extreme heat. In addition, logging operations happen far from emergency treatment. The Pennsylvania and New Jersey logging industries are regulated by OSHA and despite those regulations, logging accidents happen. Oftentimes, those accidents are fatal or result in catastrophic, life-altering injury.
The most common types of logging, timber or sawmill accidents happen as a result of:
- being caught in/under/between
- falls from elevation
- struck by/against
- logging truck accidents
Rights of Those Injured in Logging Accidents in Pennsylvania and New Jersey
In logging accident cases, the potential liable parties often include:
- equipment manufacturers, distributors and retailers
- equipment rental companies
- service/maintenance companies
Loggers who are seriously injured in Pennsylvania or New Jersey logging or timber accidents may be able to obtain financial compensation over and above workers’ compensation. Unfortunately, most injured loggers only make workers’ compensation claims and never seek expert advice as to whether there are other viable claims. It is vital to speak to an experienced Pennsylvania and New Jersey logging accident lawyer as soon as possible to determine liability of others. You may be entitled to compensation for future pain and suffering, future medical bills/treatment and more.
